I am so excited for this event and stoked that Rise After-Hours Boston has brought Meat Katie back into Boston. It’s been a little over 5 years since we busted our asses to first bring him to the Phoenix Landing when we were doing Tension. We scraped up everything we could to make the event happen and it went off as expected. Such an amazing night of sounds in that room. Mark (MK) has had a huge influence on not only my DJ’ing but also production, showing me that you don’t have to pigeonhole your taste to one sub-genre. As one of the representatives of a sound called “Tech Funk” he has showed me that you can express your diversity in sound and talent of being able to play sets across the spectrum in a tasteful manner. If you have never had the chance to hear one of his sets or the many releases that his label LOT49 has released, this is your chance on January 18th!Events
“A Mix by Melee and I to celebrate not only my first year on the playa for Burning Man, but also our everlasting friendship and partnership of passion. Brothers from different mothers. In times where I’ve felt discouraged, or challenged adversity, Melee has inspired me to continue doing what I truly love, finding great tunes attempting to mix them without getting too excited!
From coast to coast, our friendship thrives and flourishes with ideas that we both integrate into our labels, Monism & Sturdy. In accordance with Melee’s absence this year, I will do my best to represent on his behalf. He’s half the reason I’m there anyways!!

sHack’s new REVAMPED album dropped yesterday and it contains some of the finest mashed up classic tracks from the tech-funk and breaks scene. This is a MUST HAVE album for those who have been playing any of the artists listed below. sHack is such an important part of the tech-funk community and as a pioneer he has curated outlets for us such as StrongArm Sessions and also the Techfunk Manifesto Blog. Big respect to him and the whole community that supports.
“I decided to embark on a whole new extension of the re-edit idea looking at creating a number of brand new tracks out of components taken from older tunes… proper mash-ups. Some were born out of simple live jams that evolved into finely tuned studio creations, whilst others were ground-up rebuilds where I was effectively writing new pieces of music using samples from other tracks. There was no fixed way of working and no sacred cows that went un-plundered.” [Elite Force]
The long-awaited ‘Revamped’ album from mashup supremo Elite Force, is finally with us. With a list of Revamped artists that include Wolfgang Gartner, The Propellerheads, Plump DJs, Datsik, Vandal, Calvertron, Stanton Warriors, Meat Katie, Daniele Papini, Popof, Bar9, Bassbin Twins, Dylan Rhymes, Hatiras & Classixx (amongst many more), these re-workings are often closer to new productions than simple edits, a point made very eloquently by iDJ who observed that ‘we have entered a whole new paradigm in mashupology’ with the release of this album

First up we have the deep warm tech house textures of Italy’s Presslaboys with their take on ’Needles & Pins’, then straight on to fellow country man Flavio Diaz who gives us a swinging house version of Lucia. From there we head North to Scandinavia where one of Sweden’s finest Tony Senghore delivers a simply unique piece of electro funk with his take on Meat Katie’s title track ’The Tension’.
